I just ran across Ed's obit and am so sorry that he is gone. I grew up with Ed in Florissant, MO, and lost touch with him when I joined the service. We spent many nights camping together both in the Scouts and with his parents. I remember his first motorcycle, a Cushman two speed, that we had to push down the street to get started. Ed, Dave Hill and I were inseparable during junior and senior high! We did canoe races on the Current River and double dated to a Simon and Garfunkel concert at Washington University. I also remember the pet raccoon he had and would take camping with us. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you celebrate your memory of him. If you should ever want to get in touch, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for the pictures as he grew up exactly as I would have imagined.
